Well he's been in charge for 6 years and not a lot to show for it.
But, to be brief:
1)Abruptly stopping the retooling that had started in December 2013. We would have seen a Brewers/Rays/As rebuild had it succeeded. I don't know that it would have, but it was off to a very good start (bringing in Eaton and improving 10 games in one season). And when they stopped it to "go for it", the team improved only marginally at a long-term cost.
2)The debacle of June 2016 is unforgivable to me.
3)Getting virtually nothing out of any secondary trades in the current rebuild. All of the successful retoolers and 3-year rebuilders got some important hits in these trades.
4)Consistently poor evaluation of veterans (FAs and players traded for) throughout Hahn's tenure. That will matter in a year or so and I don't see it suddenly changing.
